Pumpkins!!!! by Davi

For our first Community Service day, we first went to Bruegger’s for lunch. Then we came back to DA and decorated a pumpkin. After we finished decorating our pumpkins, we took them to the Duke Children’s Hospital. It felt really good to be able to give the kids at the hospital the Halloween that they couldn’t have because they’re sick.

The woman that met us said that instead of going trick-or-treating in the neighborhood, the children go in the hospital. If they see a ghost on a door, that means that they should trick-or-treat at that room. Since some of the kids can’t have candy, the hospital gives out small trinkets; pens, pencils, notepads, erasers, magnets, stickers, etc. The hospital also celebrates other holidays, like Christmas, Hanukkah, and Kwanzaa. The place is really cool, and it looks like a really nice place to be if you’re sick. That’s all for my community service project.

  1. That’s so nice! I like how you said, “the Halloween that they couldn’t have”. Did each student from DA decorate one pumpkin or did you work in groups?
